Heaven...... OUr citizenship

“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior,
the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into
conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has
even to subject all things to Himself†(Philippians 3:20-21, NASB).

A Word From Billy Graham
“Nothing can be compared with the home going of a believer who says goodbye here
to all of the suffering, difficulties and the problems in this life, and then is
surrounded immediately by angels and carried by them to a glorious welcome in
Heaven. That is the reason I believe that death can be beautiful. I have known
people to die with expressions of triumph on their faces. No wonder the Bible
says, ‘Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His godly ones.’ (Psalm
116:15, NASB). No wonder David said, ‘Even though I walk through the valley of
the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your
staff, they comfort me’ (Psalm 23:4, NASB). Many who read this may be fearing
and dreading death. You may be in a hospital room or in a room at home, and soon
God will be calling you to Himself. At the moment you are suffering, but because
of Christ in another moment you will be transformed. The glories, beauties,
splendor and grandeur of Heaven will soon be yours. If you know Christ, you can
put your trust and confidence in Him because He died for you -- and in that last
moment, the greatest crisis of all, God will have His angels there to carry you
gloriously, wonderfully into Heaven!â€
